Simple Ways for a Peaceful Morning




Happy Sunday Dolls,


Sunday is a day for relaxation and family bonding . Saturday is me and my husband’s Sabbath day so today is a new week for us. This Sunday morning has been a peaceful one for me. Hopefully this post will inspire you with your next free morning of relaxation. Here’s my Sunday Morning Routine:

Waking Up


My morning wake-up call is my husband’s voice and warm embrace. My morning isn’t as sweet or desired without this. This early morning shown affection is something I cherish very deeply and I can't bear a day without it.

As a woman, I view daily affection as a key to a healthy relationship. For me and my marriage, it begins in the morning. Finding a time every day to express love to your husband in some way is very important.

Afterwards, I do my prim and lazy cat nap stretch and begin with my morning prayer. I’ve made it my task to pursue God every morning by hearing and reading his word as I used to do. I have my choice of my personal Bible, which my dear sister-in-law gave to me, or my ‘Bible’ app.



Starting My Day •


Next I ready myself for the day, by beginning my morning cleansing routine. I go to my vanity and I examine how my skin is feeling. On certain days I use my HiMirror to examine my skin if I feel unsure or adventurous with my skincare endeavors.

I turn on my Louis Armstrong Playlist and begin. If I could meet any celebrity, it would be him. If only I could see him perform live in New Orleans. I would dance freely in my custom Ebony Nikita dress.


Music in the morning is a great way to wake you up and begin your day on a good note, ESPECIALLY if its jazz music, wink wink.

Here’s my playlist tor this Sunday morning:

1. I’ve got a Feeling I’m Falling by Louis Armstrong

2. Hallelujah I Love Her So by Ray Charles

3. Basin Street Blues by Louis Armstrong (Fun and Vibrant!)

4. I Gotta a Woman by Ray Charles (Fun and Vibrant!)

5. That’s How Strong My Love Is by Ottis Redding


After my refreshing shower, I dressed myself in my red puff, long sleeve dress that you all will see in my upcoming Fall/Winter Lookbook. I also decided to wrap my passion twists into a low side bun.

Breakfast •



Since my husband was doing quiet time, I made my way downstairs for a quick morning breakfast. I noticed the sun was shining beautifully this morning. Glory to Yahweh.

I made a small bowl of Special K Pumpkin Spice Cereal and readied my boiling water for tea. I chose Yogi Blueberry Energizing Tea this morning. I used two spoonfuls of organic honey & two packs of Ecostick sugars. So you can imagine how sweet this was. My breakfast was quick and delightful.


Last night I received my December issue of Harper's Bazaar, so I decided to leisurely flip through a couple of pages. I’m trying to get back into the habit of reading (even if it's a magazine haha). Before I've fancied a really great book named "The Art of the Table" by Suzanne Von Drachenfels. As a wife and simply as a lady, I take it upon myself to learn about table settings and dining fundamentals. Those are two subjects rarely taught or spoken about. It's important to offer family and guests with the best dining experience in your home. It's also immensely significant to know how to conduct yourself within a formal setting.


I encourage everyone to partake in reading an informative book. This could benefit you in your future in many ways.

After a couple of concentrated page flips, my husband came downstairs and surprised me with the most delicious slice of avocado toast. It was something so simple yet so delectable. It was so delicious that I decided to post it in my blog. Man do I wish I could take credit for this.



Recipe:

4 organic avocados

2 slices of whole grain wheat bread

Freshly grounded black pepper

1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil

A squeeze of lemon


1. Mash 4 organic avocados in a small bowl

2. Toast 2 slices of whole grain wheat bread

3. Evenly spread the mashed avocado on the 2 slices of toast

4. Evenly distribute a couple of cracks of freshly grounded black pepper on each toast

5. Lightly drizzle about 1 1/2 tablespoons of olive oil on each toast

6. Finish off with a squeeze of lemon on each slice of toast! (Adds freshness & balances out the flavors)


I took one bite of this and I realized this breakfast dish was simple yet flavorful. One slice satisfied my appetite and it completed my breakfast.


There are days when I skip breakfast and I usually regret it. If you're like me and you tend to lack enough time to make breakfast, try to rework your schedule and fit in an extra 15 minutes so you will be able to enjoy a simple breakfast.

You will thank yourself later.

I am pleased that I had a healthy balanced breakfast which supplied me with energy and a happy full stomach.


Ending my Morning & Beginning Noon •


The best way to wrap up any time of the day is with my beloved. My husband and I spent time together while we ate. We spoke about our upcoming schedule and plans for the week. We also admired the surprisingly perfect warm weather. It’s the type of weather that calls for a picnic or a nice walk in the neighborhood. We eventually made our way back upstairs in our room and relaxed on our bed.


I hope some of these tips registered with you.

Although some of these suggestions may be simple, there are times when we need a small reminder.

Thank you all for reading this post. I wish you all a great, relaxing and productive Sunday. In the comment section down below, tell me about your Sunday morning routine OR your desired Sunday morning.


Love,




Ebony Nikita

Hello Dolls! Sometimes I wish I could snap my fingers and a gourmet breakfast would appear. AND that avocado toast would be apart of it ; ) Does anyone else’s family make a grand Caribbean breakfast for Thanksgiving like mine? I was looking forward to ours like I do every year!
